After Hybrid OS to Native OS conversion in 6500, unable to wr mem

Hi,

I have converted 6500 with SUP2 and MSFC2 Hybrid OS system to Native OS. After the conversion, iam not able to do wr mem. If i do wr mem, iam getting an error message of startup-config file open failed(No device available).

If the "sh startup" command is executed, i get an error like- unable to open nvram://startup-config

But the system is detecting the NVRAM.

The config-register value is set to 0x2102

Pls give your valuable inputs.

Venkat

Probably you forgot to clear the variable CONFIG_FILE. The CONFIG_FILE environment variable is not used by the Cisco IOS (Native) software, and may cause a problem. This can easily be avoided here, by removing either bootflash:switch.cfg or slot0:switch.cfg from the environment settings.

To do this, issue the following commands:

rommon 2 > CONFIG_FILE=

!--- The CONFIG_FILE statement is case-sensitive and is all caps.

rommon 3 > sync

!--- The sync command writes the new environment variable setting to NVRAM.

rommon 4 > reset

!--- The reset command is necessary after changing any environment variable.

The following URL covers the entire upgrade process:
